Last night Trey and I had a function to go to for his BN. It was called the Gunner's Salute and was a welcome home get together for all the soldiers that came home from the deployment. I completely missed the deadline for childcare (good thing.. ummmm 97 kids to 3 care givers? NOT OKAY. I don't know that I will ever use child care for an Army function! I'd much rather have someone I know and trust watching our little lovebug!)
Our friend Fritz offered to stay with him so we took him up on it! Yep, that's right... a grown man, big tough soldier with no kids of his own offered to stay with a 2 month old on a Friday night! To say I was nervous was an understatement. Nothing to do with him, but I was leaving my baby for the first time. But I put one foot in front of the other and got in the car.. I may or may not have been fighting tears on the way to post.
We both did good though in the end! I only texted once to see how they were doing and Fritz handled a massive dirty diaper and they were asleep on the couch together when Trey and I got home. He even sent me a few pictures... sure does know how to make a mama happy!
